To say that this season of Real Housewives of Atlantastarted off with a bang would be a total lie. Sure, there is a lot of talk about Kenya Moore’s surprise marriage, but everyone who follows Real Housewivesin the off-season already knew about that, so it wasn’t at all shocking by the time the first episode aired.
On the bright side, Cynthia Bailey has moved out of that “Will they or won’t they get back together?” phase of her divorce and she is back in the dating pool. It isn’t the most exciting story line at this point, but I can’t help loving Cynthia and rooting for her. Even so, I can’t wait for things to intensify next episode when Kim Zolciakreturns and gets in a screaming match with Kenya. THAT is something I’m really looking forward to.
I’ll tell you what is about the most disappointing thing that could ever happen on a Real Housewives Of Atlanta episode – that I did not get to experience Sheree Whitfield Vs. Party Planner: The Resurrection. I was all excited for a revival of the infamous “Who gon’ check me boo?” moment (like basically my favorite real Housewives moment ever), and instead I got a lackluster mini-fit of Sheree tearing off her mic and acting like a normal person under stress. Let’s just call this what it is – unacceptable!
See, I depend on Sheree to act like, well, Sheree. Sheree of yore, that is. Like “Budget, what’s that?!” This new evolved, life-coached Sheree, who is essentially your average busy-body after an extra pumpkin spice latte and behaves strangely mature-ish (for her), is a real snooze.
After an explosive Season 9, Season 10 of Real Housewives of Atlanta is a total snooze fest two episodes in. I still have hope though- that trailer for Season 10 really did look lit. Clearly, we haven’t reached any of those juicy moments since the most wild thing to happen during episode 2 was Cynthia Bailey’s(completely unnecessary) bath tub session. It was giving me flashbacks to Tamra Judge on RHOC.
Cynthia also went on a date with a much younger guy that she compared to Norbit- which was super awkward, and not in an entertaining sort of way. Other than that, we saw Kenya Moorecrying about the state of her marriage and the media speculation (already).
Meanwhile, Cynthia Bailey is stranded at the lake all by herself with no one but the leaves to talk to. If it sounds like the start of a bad – very bad – horror movie where a desperate, lonely woman turns to the wrong kind of guy, you’re right! After a relaxing bath, Cynthia finds herself on a date where she is blindfolded and wandering the dark and creepy hallways of a chicken farm while getting her photo taken by Malcolm X’s long-lost twin, Evan.
The first episode was a pretty easy one for Kandi. Her restaurant is doing well, she didn’t argue with anyone, and she even won the Cynthia Bailey lookalike contest. I’m sure that the lack of drama for Kandi is short-lived though. This is Real Housewives of Atlanta, after all.
It is still so hard to believe that Kenya Moore is actually married and apparently I’m not the only one who was (and is still) shocked by the news. Kenya’s girl Cynthia Bailey was caught off guard, but she did play along when Kenya asked her to refer to Kenya’s man by “Baby” instead of his actual name – which is very reminiscent to the Big Poppa era of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
As expected, NeNe Leakes wasn’t here for that nonsense. She went out of her way asking the questions the viewers want to know about Kenya’s mysterious marriage. Kenya maintained that it was a small ceremony and she didn’t even invite her own dad to walk her down the aisle, but Kandi Burruss pointed out that there was a good amount of people in the pictures. So why wasn’t Kenya’s “best friend” Cynthia included? SMH.
It’s the best time of the year: Real Housewives of Atlanta is back on television. Thank God! It has been way too long since that epic Season 9 four part reunion. I need to see what these women are up to.
Aside from new episodes, the ATL ladies are out and about promoting the show, doing interviews, spilling tea, and throwing shade. It is a great time to be alive.
